TIEEP: Texas Industrial Energy Efficiency Program

Program Overview

Building on earlier successes, the goal of the Texas Industrial Energy Efficiency Program (TIEEP) is to help Texas industries maintain their world-leading position through ever-improving energy intensity, reduced environmental impact, and enhanced social and economic development. TIEEP is sponsored by SECO, the Texas State Energy Conservation Office.

Our interdisciplinary team is comprised of faculty from several colleges and those in full-time leadership roles with UH Population Health. We look forward to expanding this team over the academic year.
